Z PLUMBERZ Apprenticeship Program Is Driving New Talent to a Top Trade

The fast-growing plumbing franchise is helping young plumbers master a much-needed trade

Plumbers are more needed now than ever before. With Housecall Pro predicting that the industry is expected to grow by 24 percent by 2024, a new generation of plumbers is needed to take up the trade. Baby Boomers, which make up 75 percent of tradespeople, are expected to retire in the near future. This means that there will be a shortage of plumbers in the near future that needs to be addressed now.

Z PLUMBERZ, the fast-growing plumbing franchise, is answering the call. As one of the plumbing franchises most focused on training and development, we’ve launched an Apprentice Program to help young plumbers enter the trade and give them the skills they need to one day own a plumbing business.

“School wasn’t always the best fit for me,” says Jason McComb, a current apprentice and office administrator at Z PLUMBERZ. “I wanted to go into the trades and use my hands since I’ve always been a hands-on learner. I knew I didn’t want to go into college debt. I just think everyone has their own talent, and with Z PLUMBERZ, I’m getting job experience and training to one day take over this business.”

Devin Statetzny, who at 19 years old contacted Z PLUMBERZ directly for an opportunity in the apprenticeship program, said, “I enjoyed working with my hands and was recommended to start off in the trades industry as a plumber because of all the different career paths it can lead you to. The opportunity here is endless.”

Z PLUMBERZ apprentice program is equally focused on best business practices and technical training to empower young plumbers with confidence and know-how they need. We provide comprehensive coaching on how to build a work plan, set attainable goals, and manage daily tasks through operational processes. On the technical side, we provide robust in-class and on-the-job training to help earn industry certifications, master equipment and techniques, and perform jobs with the expertise your customers expect.

“Z PLUMBERZ is a great place to work and great work to do, even though not a lot of people do it and everyone needs it,” Statetzny says. “It’s a great industry to work in and a great service to provide. I hope to keep developing my skills until I’m a Master Plumber. It’s a huge opportunity and a huge market, and eventually, I want to own my own business.”
